The Faculty of Engineering, University of Alberta, in collaboration with the National Research Council National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT), with $36.8 million in funding over six years through Alberta Innovates Technology Futures, seeks a Scientific Director to define and lead a transformative research initiative in Nano-Enabled Biomaterials for Sustainable Living (NEBSL).
The mandate is to advance and apply nanotechnology in order to create new biomaterials that can be used to address challenges and opportunities of significance to Alberta and globally. These materials may result from the programmed assembly of biomaterials, biomass conversion, and/or the utilization of naturally occurring biomaterials. This could lead to the development of environmentally compatible, high performance, nano-biomaterials for environmental sensing and remediation, energy conversion, catalysis, health monitoring and regulation, bio-refining and conversion, and value-added applications.
1. Professor and Scientific Director
The Scientific Director will be the key leader of the NEBSL initiative and be responsible for defining, implementing and executing the overall research and commercialization programs. Responsibilities include providing overall leadership and management of the NEBSL initiative, teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, conducting, publishing and commercializing research, and supervising graduate students and research, technical and administrative staff.
The successful candidate will have demonstrated success in defining and leading initiatives of this magnitude, an internationally-recognized proven record of research achievement including significant accomplishments in the commercialization of nanotechnology advances, and hold a PhD degree in a discipline appropriate to the NEBSL initiative.
The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of Professor with tenure in an appropriate Department within the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta and will also be considered for nomination for a Canada Research Chair (Tier I) position. The NEBSL Scientific Director will have a formal association with NINT.
Applications, including a statement of interest and vision, a curriculum vitae, a description of research and teaching interests, and the names and addresses (including email) of three referees, should be sent to:
Dr. David T. Lynch, Dean
